Keith


vs.

Kevin



Vote for your favorite and tell us why your pick should be part of...The Ultimate Office Staff.

Winners:
Part I - Gareth vs. Dwight...Dwight
Part II - Finchy vs. Packer...Finchy

I'll give the edge to Keith. That comment about orgasms is a classic. Kevin is also a pervert, but not to the degree of Keith.

I'll go ahead and protest that I'll bet the folks (including me) who have voted for the US version haven't ever watched the UK one just so one of the UK fans doesn't have to go to the trouble.

Ive seen both, and to me Kieth was mildly funny, but what ruined him for me was the fact that this dude couldnt possibly have actually held a job, while Kevin could

David: Under strengths, you've just put "accounts".
Keith: Yeah.
David: That's your job though; that's just...
Keith: Mmmm.
David: No, Keith, I was sort of looking for your skills within your job, so is there something else you could've put there.
Keith: ...
David: Ok, well, under weaknesses you've put "eczema".


*ring ring*
Keith: "Booyakasha?"

Seen every episode of the UK series and I'm voting for Kevin.

Another one that's "too close to call", and where the characters are very different. In th end, I voted for Kevin...but it's by a narrow margin. His hilarious grin cracks me up every time.

I like them both, with a slight edge to Keith for his deadpan deliveries. Also the review with David was hilarious. Kevin's 'Fire Guy" jab at Jim's BBQ was pretty funny too.

oh, man, i wish they had kept in the deleted scene from that "Fire Guy" scene. After Keving calls the temp "Fire Guy", he turns and says...

"Hey kelly... I called him Fire Guy."
She replies, "Nice one, kevin."
Then he turns the other way and says, "Hey Stanley, I called him Fire Guy."
Stanley says, "I heard"

great deliveries. Check out the office website.

If this isn't a landslide victory for Keith, I question whether those voting have actually seen the BBC version.

These statements in every thread are bordering on BBC fanboy-ishness

That's why I felt the need to mock it by bringing it up before the BBC lot did.

I have to go with Keith on this one. Its close, but Keith's moments in the break room are priceless.

Had to vote Yank on this one -- although I love Keith, he's too much of a big git for me to choose over Kevin. 'Sides, Kevin's little looks at the camera cause me much laughter in each episode.

Keith's character comes across as what Gareth might turn into once he loses his earnestness.
